Luxurious European Hotels for a Spring Break
With the worst of the winter finally behind us, it’s time to turn our thoughts to some exciting destinations for spring breaks on the continent. If you’re looking for a luxurious weekend away, look no further than these incredible European hotels.
Hotel Danieli, Venice
Ever wanted to stay in a real Venetian palazzo? Well, you’re in luck. Featured in such films as Moonraker and The Tourist, the lavish Hotel Danieli is the place to stay in Venice. It’s practically next door neighbours with the city’s most celebrated landmarks, including the Doge’s Palace and Bridge of Sighs, and its location right on the waterfront makes it ideal for taking a romantic gondola ride through the atmospheric Venetian waterways. Spring is a great time to visit Venice before the heat of the summer sets in.
Westin Excelsior, Rome
On the subject of grand Italian hotels, Rome’s elegant Via Veneto has long been popular with the rich and famous, immortalised by Fellini’s famous film La Dolce Vita. You too can enjoy a slice of the good life with a stay at the Westin Excelsior. A short potter from famous landmarks such as the Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese, this luxurious hotel has incredible views of Rome and makes the perfect base for exploring the city’s wealth of cultural attractions.
This sumptuous five-star hotel in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Paris, is famous for being the place where, in room 16, Oscar Wilde lived out his final days with the typically witty comment, “I am dying beyond my means”. L’Hotel has also played host to the likes of Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra and Salvador Dali, and it continues to be a top choice for discerning guests. If you can tear yourself away from the elegant environs of the hotel, you’re just across the river from the Louvre – home to the Mona Lisa – and it’s a scenic stroll to Notre Dame Cathedral.
Hotel Palacio Villapanes, Seville
As the Hotel Palacio Villapanes writes on its website, “who hasn’t dreamed of living in a palace for a couple of days?” When you’re not out exploring Seville’s famous cultural highlights, such as the Alcazar Palace and the Museum of Flamenco, you can look forward to relaxing in the hotel’s many inviting spaces. Why not sip sangria and admire the views from the hotel’s rooftop terrace and pool, or breathe in the delicate scent of orange blossom amidst the beautiful architecture of the courtyards?
